Since your mid-twenties, "wedding season" has been year-round and the closet where bridesmaid dresses go to die has a door that can no longer shut.
But this time, it's your blushing BFF's turn. Up your MOH game by taking a class from Blue Eye Brown Eye, a local studio specializing in wedding invites, day-of paper goods and beginner calligraphy classes taught by owner Lauren Essl, who named her business after her pup's dual-colored eyes. Her stationery has been carried by Anthropologie and now she's teaching her skills to the everywoman - students get a pen, ink pot, a practice alphabet pad and careful instruction.
Prepare to be the bride's right hand gal.
